This one-day workshop teaches the basics of navigating with only a map.

Topics will cover:

  • information found on a map,
  • using the Grid Reference System,
  • Measuring Distance,
  • Contour Lines,
  • WETMan,
  • and Triangulation.  

You will also learn to tell direction using the sun, and will practice your new skills through a 3-km guided hike along Doe Lake.  
Experienced map users will gain new knowledge, and inexperienced students will leave, confident and ready to solo-hike on marked trails.

Please note, this course is one of three Navigation Courses, and is a prerequisite for the next two levels (Level 2, Navigation with Map & Compass, and Level 3, Navigation with Map, Compass & GPS).
